I'm lyin' to myself, cryin' to myself,
Tryin' to make believe my baby's on the shelf
But it's more than I can do
Tryin' to find a way to bluff it through

I miss my lovin' an' kissin'
When I hear the radio playin' "I Love You So"
That's the time, you know, I start to feel like ten below.
I'm lyin' to myself, 

Tryin' to chase the blues away.
Just because of foolish pride I tried to hide
All feeling's for Cupid's art.
And though I've cried out loud that two's a crowd

That don't convince my heart.
When I think of my sweet pet and the places we met
I tell myself I'm not a doggone bit upset
But I'm lyin' to myself,
Tryin' to chase the blues away.
